Coun­try Life goes to the Dor­dogne

Country Life Every Week - - My Favourite Painting John Burningham -

IN as­so­ci­a­tion with Box­wood Tours, Coun­try Life is de­lighted to an­nounce an ex­clu­sive tour from Septem­ber 19 to 23, en­joy­ing the gas­tron­omy and gar­dens of this richly fas­ci­nat­ing re­gion, hosted by Coun­try Life con­trib­u­tors David Wheeler and Kirsty Fer­gus­son. From our com­fort­able base at Le Vieux Lo­gis, a mem­ber of Re­lais & Châteaux with a Miche­lin-starred restau­rant, our tai­lor-made tour ex­plores the Dor­dogne’s var­ied hor­ti­cul­tural gems, fre­quently in the com­pany of their own­ers. As well as Mar­queyssac, we ex­plore ro­man­tic Sardy and the me­dieval Château de Losse, with its sen­si­tively re­stored gar­dens and château. Haute­fort boasts im­mac­u­late for­mal gar­dens and Les Jardins du Manoir d’eyrignac re­veal top­i­ary at its best. The Chartreuse du Colom­bier in­cludes a walled gar­den, a potager, a Baroque pavil­ion, av­enues and bor­ders full of old roses and tra­di­tional flow­ers.

The cost is £3,325 per per­son (sin­gle sup­ple­ment: £300), which in­cludes four nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion at Le Vieux Lo­gis, meals with lo­cal wines and re­turn flights from London Gatwick. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.box­wood­tours.co.uk or tele­phone 01341 241712.
